My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in a studio apartment. We booked online with lastminute.com, definately the recommended way to book, as when I rung the hotel the price was at least $20 more per night.
Reception was beautiful, the staff were friendly enough, and the location was fantastic. Only a short stroll to the shops on Collins Street, Flinders Street, and across the bridge to the Crown Entertainment Complex and restaurants on Southbank. Trams are a very short stroll away in all directions and there always seemed to be taxis out the front of the hotel, though be cautious of taxi drivers: they will practically refuse to drive you if its not far.
As for the rooms in the hotel, I was expecting much newer as would have been expected from the photographs of the rooms. It had been refurbished, but the bathroom had older fittings and the cupboards were obviously older. Furthermore, there was a large crack in the bathroom sink, which I think should have been fixed due to the fact that it could potentially be very unhygenic. The bed was a mock king, with 2 singles attached, which I never find impressive, and in this case the crack was very uncomfortable and obvious. The kitchenette was more like a complete kitchen within the studio apartment, with a stove and all necessary dinnerware, pots etc. The apartment was large compared to other studio apartments we'd stayed in. The view was also amazing, however a high apartment with a view was requested.
I would recommend this hotel due to its location, the space in the apartment, and the views.
